Oliftataf 44-B Group's story

Yerdi P. is 32 years old. He leads a group of eight farmers called Oliftataf 44-B in Riumata Village in the Kupang District of the East Nusa Tenggara Province. Just like many other communities living in rural areas, the community of Riumata Village also relies on agriculture for income to fulfill each family's needs.

Yerdi is married with two children. Ari is seven years old and attending the first grade of elementary school, and Natalia is five years old and in Kindergarten. To earn money, Yerdi usually sells his crops in the traditional markets. The nearest market is about 20 minutes drive from his village. The road in Riumata Village is bumpy with many holes and it's hard for public transportation to serve in this area in the rainy season.

Even though he has worked hard, Yerdi feels that his income is not enough to fulfill his family needs, and it is usually unstable. He really wants to provide nutritious food to his children because they are in a growth period and need adequate nutrition. He dreams of sending his children to the university so they will have a bright future. Not many children in this area are able to have a better education because of their parents' economic difficulties.

This situation drives Yerdi to increase his income with another business by joining the TLM Cattle Fattening Program. By joining the program, he will be able to earn a profit from selling fattened cattle. Yerdi is requesting a loan from TLM for IDR 3,400,000 to buy cattle to be fattened in 12 months. The other members of Oliftataf 44-B are also requesting loans to buy cattle to be fattened.
